When I'm not running my business you can find me spending time with my family, snuggling my two Bengal cats - Leo (that's his official name, but we call him Little Dude, Baby Boy, Beo and a handful of other names) and Lyla, sporadically working out, and spending way too much money online. I start every day with my morning cappuccino and am on a quest to perfect the art of steaming milk (possibly because of my enneagram wing) and have known to get sucking into watching hours of espresso making and steaming technique videos on YouTube.
As an enneagram 4, I find BEAUTY everywhere.
For my 15th birthday, my parents got me my first big girl camera. Little did I know that that love of taking random photos of my siblings, sunsets, and flowers would lead to me becoming a wedding photographer. I love what I do so much - not only taking photos of couples on one of the most memorable days of their lives, but running a successful business and the challenges and freedom it brings. Being a 4w5 on the enneagram, the artistic 4 in me has a deep appreciation for beauty - using photography as a way to capture the angles, colors, and lines that my eye is drawn to. That is complimented by a 5's innovative way of thinking and always analyzing what is currently happening and finding a way to make it work even better. It is basically the perfect marriage of personality traits for a wedding photographer. See what I did there?
'm Erika. I'm a born and raised Florida girl, living on our beautiful gulf coast beaches since before most of my couples were even born! I have always loved photography and give all the credit to my amazing family historian parents. They documented everything that myself, my brother, and sisters did.

I knew I wanted natural looking photos and not a ton of posed pictures. Having your photo taken can be awkward and can feel forced, yet you made it feel natural and easy. After the first 30 minutes, we felt like we were just out with a friend.
You made us feel at ease.
